Fundraising Hits a High Note with Retune Nashville

Retune Nashville is a new non-profit organization that recently formed in order to help the hard working musicians of Nashville—a lot of whom have lost instruments, performance spaces, and homes during the flood. Many of these musicians were uninsured, and have now lost their primary source of income.

To help, Retune Nashville is collecting water-damaged instruments, and reconstituting them as art pieces. They will exhibit the finished art pieces and auction them off, with all money going to "directly benefit Nashville’s working musicians through Music Cares Nashville Flood Relief and The Nashville Musicians Association Flood Relief Fund."

Retune Nashville is currently accepting donations of instruments and related parts like strings and gears. They're also looking for committee members and people to spread the word about their mission. For updates on their progress, see RetuneNashville.org.

As they so beautifully sum it up on their flyer, "Together, we can bridge Nashville’s music and art communities to help those in need and to celebrate the city’s kindness, creativity, history, and resilience."

I'm sure all the musicians of Nashville appreciate what you are doing. Hope to hear back through my email. Thanks to you again.... I'm a realtor, Okla. removed...
